They used a special roller fitting that grabbed the boom or the rolled up sail and boom as required.

So it looks like someone has installed a tack hook (as part of conversion to slab reefing?) through the gear drive for the roller boom. It also looks like your boom is not currently rotationally centered.

Slab reefing is definitely preferable to old style boom roller reefing, but maybe temporarily remove the tack hook, turn the gear to realign the boom and see if it stays there..

As has been mentioned, the chainplate leak and preventing additional water intrusion is very important. Also getting a good, solid assessment of the integrity of the beam and bulkhead is paramount. That structure bears A LOT of load under sail and hidden damage will compound as sailing loads and works the structure.

Looking forward to pictures!

As you can see above, the delamination is on the starboard side. Looks to me like it will likely spread, but the center of the beam is fine.

This is the second beam, a replacement of the original.

The port side is better but not great:



I expect to have to do the beam in a year or two. Not going far from home port with it or offshore.

The boom didn't even need to be removed! A 9mm hex turns it easily!

Thanks for the advice.
